Universal Avionics is to supply Gestair MRO with EFI-890R Advanced Flight Display to be installed in five Falcon 900B aircraft

Each Falcon 900B aircraft will be upgraded to a five-display configuration and will have installed upon it UA’s dual UNS-1Fw SBAS-Flight Management System (FMS) with five-inch Control Display Units, Engine Interface Unit (EIU), UniLin UL-801 Communications Management Unit (CMU), Solid-State Data Transfer Unit and dual Radio Control Units for a 'total package' solution.

"We are delighted to offer a solution for avionics modernisation that will comply with the current mandates of SESAR and ADS-B Out, allowing the service life of Falcon 900B aircraft to be extended," said Ricardo Tercero, Director of Gestair MRO. "We expect the Falcon 900B aircraft that are currently being upgraded to be the first of many others to come," he added.

The EFI-890R Advanced Flight Displays provide primary flight information normally associated with standard Attitude Director Indicator and Horizontal Situation Indicator presentations including altitude, flight guidance, and speed information. A centrally located EFI-890R Multi-Function Display (MFD) interfaces with the EIU to present an all-digital engine indication system that replaces analogue indicators and stores up to 100 hours of engine data. Each engine function is shown in an analogue scale dial and digital readout, providing greater visual identification of important engine parameters.

Tercero also detailed that Gestair MRO is currently investing in the update of infrastructures, with a capacity of 18,000 m2 of hangar space, and in equipment and solutions that allow the company to position Gestair MRO as a clear reference in the aeronautical maintenance market.
